The Scale Academy of Performing Arts
TW2 Inc and The Scale Academy of Performing Arts
The Whittington's are a young brother and sister duo, Robert and La'Meshia,, both began their Classical training at the age of 5. As the years progressed they studied Celtic, Bluegrass, Jazz rifts and their family roots of Gospel and Folk music. In the year of 2004 La'Meshia and Robert decided to began a music ministry, going by the name 'The Whittington's' blending musical genres to make an eclectic and powerful sound.
They have performed over 100 events and venues, such as: WNCW radio station, Tamale Festival, El Ritmo Festival, Caldwell tv, CoMPASS Cable, Snow Angels Movie Premiere, Rick Hendricks: Nascar Roasting Ceremony, Blue Ridge Celtic Fest, won Best Performer Award from The Links, Incorporated, headliners at Lincoln Theatre and Tremont Hall, Lake Lure Inn, Ralph Sexton's: Trinity Baptist Church, The McDowell House, Festival of Lights, The Goombay Festival, Chavis Community Awards, Etta Baker Memorial, Method Road Historic Community Festival, Wake Tech Community College: USA Global Tour, and numerous weddings, anniversaries, youth events, pastor Appreciations and conventions.
When La'Meshia was 16 years old she decided that her dream was to found and operate a 501(c) 3 non profit music school designed to give all youth a chance to reach their full potential through music education, no matter their income, background or disabilities. Several years later on April 26, 2013 this dream developed into a reality and the dream expanded to not only music education but arts education and therapy for impoverished, at-risk, and special needs youth.
